Reporting, through our monitoring and analytics services will provide you with the reporting necessary to manage regulatory compliance, help you identify process weakness and show you areas where additional technology may be required.
NETWORKING & ROUTING
Digital information is useless if not for the ability to access it. In today's digitally connected world that requires a knowledge of the wired and wireless transport and security technologies used in the transmission of digital information. More importantly, it requires the vision to migrate from traditional routed networks to more forward looking, simple and secure fabric environments.
We have the largest installed base of fabric switched networking environments in the US and we can show you first hand how to begin the migration process.
Cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm that enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable system resources that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet.
Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a public utility.
Cloud computing allows companies to avoid or minimize up-front IT infrastructure costs allowing enterprises to get applications deployed faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, and it enables IT to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating or unpredictable demand.
Networks have evolved away from traditional "Castle and Moat" configurations and are expanding to support the mobile nature of our lives. This means that the definition of the network "edge" has evolved to include home/branch offices, campus and even networks that support cars, trains and other forms of transportation.
Securing the edge while providing speed and flexibility for mobile devices is a key challenge facing businesses today. Our expertise in mobile networking is significant and we hold the required certifications to ensure that the mobile network supports the environment it is installed in and can be easily managed and secured.
Assisting people in the exchange of information is one of the very first technologies to be developed. Since that time simple communication needs have evolved into complex collaboration requirements that can extend well beyond the network edge.
Our experience with the the underlying networking environments allows us to have a unique perspective on collaboration tools. We are certified to help our clients build a collaborative environment that is secure and efficient to their operation.
SECURITY & FIREWALL
Many businesses take the approach of single vendor security solutions. Although making it slightly easier to manage this methodology makes it easier for intruders to leverage security flaws.
Our perspective is "why put two locked doors in front of your business if they have the same locks and keys?" We work with our clients to develop a security posture that extends beyond the network edge and provides the levels of security necessary to keep information safe while simultaneously supporting the need for access by authenticated users.
This is a key expertise of STEPCG.
3G & 4G LTE
Advancement in bandwidth and throughput of cellular connectivity is a game changer when it comes to resilience (business continuity)
Off=net or back-channel connectivity allows for the continued operation mission critical services.
INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT)
It is clear that IoT is firmly planted in the strategic plans of many businesses. The projected growth over the coming years will dwarf the growth we have seen in the last 10 years.
IoT is a necessary piece of the business intelligence equation and will act as a validation point for business process and operational improvement initiatives.
How well you prepare for IoT is the issue at hand. Traditional network architectures are physically unable to support the demand. It will be important to look at all the options before selecting your direction.
